Public Asked to Use Main Entrance to Edina City Hall

Beginning Monday, July 1, all visitors to Edina City Hall, 4801 W. 50th St., must enter through the building’s main entrance.

“The tragic mass murder of city employees in a Virginia Beach, Virginia, municipal building last month is yet another reminder of the importance of paying attention to workplace safety and security in local government buildings and facilities,” said City Manager Scott Neal. “City government leaders take this issue seriously.”

Neal has been working with City employees to develop local workplace safety and security improvements for more than a year. Police Lt. Brian Tholen has been evaluating each public building’s security.

A building’s entrance is the first line of defense when it comes to safety. Having just one point of entry makes it easier to monitor traffic coming in and out of the building. As a result, Neal made the decision to close the public entrance to City Hall from Eden Avenue. Going forward, that entrance will be used only by employees.

For more information, call Edina City Hall, 952-927-8861.
